Here's attempt number one for trying to make it back from wherever it is that I've been. Plans for the destruction of the isolation booth I've been spending so much time in are filed with the appropriate offices - county and local. So it shouldn't be long before the wrecking crews get here. In the mean time, I'll try and put myself out there again.
My best friend works in a state prison. I love the stories she begins with, "So I was at the prison . . ." My absolute favorite was the one that began, "So, I was at the prison talent show . . ." I had to stop her right there and ask the question. "They have a talent show in prison?" Apparently it's a whole competition. I think they used to compete state wide, other prisons' winners versus each other. But I digress.
She's works with the general population everyday. One of the inmates she knows passes his time by making up new slang terms and seeing how long it takes to make their way around the prison. I don't know how original these are, but here are some that she said caught on.
Ca-ra-na-zy ~ when a guy is past crazy. Man, that boy is ca-ra-na-zy!
Selling wolf tickets - when someone is crying wolf. especially used on the basketball court when somebody's trying to draw a foul. Dude, he's doin' nothing but selling wolf tickets.
You're butt's hungry - when an inmate has an obvious wedgie. Dang, is your butt hungry today.
That's enough re-education for today. I let the inspection on my motorcycle run out. Gotta go make a call to get it in the shop right quick. Later.
